Dear Ms. Mason:
I am writing to apply for the Bilingual Teacher position at the Dallas Independent School District as advertised through your web site yesterday. My natural teaching instincts and bilingual skills in English and Spanish are a perfect match with the job description that you have provided in your ad.
While pursuing my graduation, I worked as a teacher’s assistant at the university where I was required to give instructions in Spanish. Since my job was to maintain a positive classroom environment by interacting with students of both American and Spanish families, I possess well honed skills in teaching people with diverse backgrounds.
Specifically, I am highly skilled in providing students with proper learning activities and experiences intended to help them accomplish their potential for academic, emotional, physical, and social development. I have a demonstrated ability to enable students to build up expertise and skills to function effectively in society.
With my related experience, bilingual proficiency and educational background, I am positive I can make a significant contribution to the Dallas Independent School. I would like an opportunity to further discuss the Bilingual Teacher position and my relevant qualifications. I will contact you in the week of October 5 to confirm receipt of my material and will be available at (144) 221-1771 in the interim. Thank you for your time and consideration.
